. i respectfully request that you deny conditional use approval. thank you. >> our issue is not affordable housing but any use that it serves. this is not chp or with larkin street. this is about the choice of this particular building in a myriad of zoning exceptions. the city could have avoided this process. i have a thought and with the outline and outreach plan. out reach in this case can mean identifying decision makers that will support and pass required legislation that includes the planning department, the mayor, his staff. after they reach out to the supporters among the community leaders, neighborhood associations and can influence the back of the project. only after the project is virtually insured legislative passage, political cover did they contact the neighbors. they have traded an uncooperative atmosphere with the stress of the people in the area. the project sponsor has purchasing deadlines for the building and they needed the zoning from the city. there is $4.4 million to spy out reach. no decision makers lived near the property. >> let me ask anyone watc
-of-duty death memorial wall. it is a somber ceremony and yet an important one and i think all of us, it's testament to the men that tony and vince were that vuso many people coming out once again to support one another and first and foremost, to support the valario and the perez family. this is a very special day because it is another illustration of just how special vince and tony were to all of us and how they will live on in our hearts and our minds and also in san francisco fire department's history because they gave their lives in their duties. thank you so much for everyone that's in attendance. we have uniformed members of this department. we have many of the civilian members of this department. all of us hear your pain and grieve with you and continue to grieve with you and you have my commitment that we will continue to be here with you as a family. not as replacements for tony and vince, but as supporters. and those of you that will continue to always contact you and reach out to you and i want you to know that you have a family in all of the members of the san francisco fire
across the u.s. this week, we will look at other perspectives on the issue of lightsquared. now joining us is representative paul broun. he is chairman of the science- space technology subcommittee. you recently held a hearing around lightsquared. what was that hearing about and what did you learn? guest: we have been trying to get information from lightsquared, because the information we have been able to ascertain thus far is that this ground-based broadband network that lightsquared wants to put in place is being fast track through the fcc. and this administration is pushing the fcc to approve ishtsquared's spectrum which adjacent to the gps spectrum. everything that we hear from all lightsquared is that this spectrum, if it is ground-based, is going to interfere with everybody's gps in their cars and interfere with the highly that the gpeseses science and the military community uses. so the high precision gps is probably going to be interviewed byk b-- interfered with lightsquared going ahead. the spectrum was designed for low intensity. it was designed to be a signal broadcast from
a discussion on this important topic. who used personal care products? shampoo, face cream, deodorant, contact solution? the numbers could be staggering. the stories that i tell in the book and stories i talk about today are store reus about all of us. to tell you a little bit about my personal story. i was a 17 magazine makeup reading desperate to read in. with each careful purchase, i was one step closer to that girl i dreamed up. i used lots of them, 20 products a day, makeup, skin creams, an enormous cloud of aqua net hair spray. this is the back in the days of big hair and shoulder pads and bright makeup. i looked up all these products as a teen, 20 products a day, i was surprised to discover, i had been with exposing myself to 200 products a day before i got on the school bus. what is in this stuff that we put on our bodies, put in our hair on a daily basis. that is what we have been working on and looking at for about the passed 5 years. these are the groups involved in the campaign for safe products. most poplar brands of all kinds of products, deodor rants, makeups, even baby shampoos
to take their information that is being processed by a cloud service provider and use it internally or to another provider should the need arise. >> is there anything technologically unique about cloud computers that cause more difficulty with this particular concern? that is termination of services? >> not on the technical side but i would echo that one of the big concerns about moving to the public cloud is exactly that and we want to be able to assure continuity of service to our customers and all of that so we have to work those scenarios and to what happened in the unlikely event that the cloud service provider can no longer offer that service so they have capabilities having standards set. this is something fist is working on for cloud interoperable is so we can quickly shift to another cloud service provider if necessary. >> clout and interoperable leawood presume that you would have equal security measures. >> that goes back to the idea of having provisional authorization in place for hopefully many providers so that that makes it much easier for us to have a choice and be a

desalinization. but when this came before us for the first time, the most recent time, there were three of us here. i was uncomfortable with the public concern of lack of opportunity to weigh in and that this out -- and vet this out. my concern was there was not sufficient opportunity for members of our public to engage us in the merits of even having the study continue. given the resolution, and in particular whereas no. 3, which i think is significantly exhaustive -- and then with respect to the description of the agreement at no. 4, the item you place for our consideration regarding public outrage -- the then commissioner -- ad then -- and then commissioner torres's comments about prioritizing -- i wondered whether we could consider the flexibility in terms of the approach with the public. i wondered whether we would give the public an opportunity, through these engagements, to maybe tell us what their priorities were, depending on who showed up. house staff decides to -- how staff decides to collate and present that data may weigh heavily on our decisions. for me, it has been
given that this relates to the conditional use authorization is quasi--judicial in nature, we need to provide parties with due process for this entire proceeding. members may not be biased or predispose toward a particular option on this project. all of us will be considering the same effects, records, and testimony. colleagues, any objections to proceeding in this way? let me ask the supervisor farrell resided you have any official comment. why don't we proceed to the hearing? i will have four representatives from the appellants. if you could please set up. as i said before, you have of 210 minutes to present your case for the appeal of the neg de3c. you up to 10 minutes for the appeal of the cu. you can use all of that time or as much as you would like. >> president chiu and supervisors, thank you. i represent the cow hollow association. i will present the talking points regarding the final mitigated-declaration appeal. then i will continue on to the cu and, with president chiu's permission, ceded the rest of my time to a member of the cow hollow association. the overarching poin
